Fresh Start

Huddled under covers away from the cold

It’s warmer than yesterday, or so I’m told

It’s not just the weather that keeps me so confined

The news of plague and famine are currently on my mind

The affairs of state a vote can’t seem to change

A presidential palace needs to be rearranged

Loud debates of shouting, criticizing everyone

How is change to come about when we cannot think as one

Power and its money seem to win the lot

The helpless and the needy seem to always be forgot

We need a change, we need to think

We need to gather to gain strength

As the opposing forces will go to any length

Destroying friends and allies

Taking up with enemies

Forgetting about the masses

We need a fresh decade, new century.
